New viking shoes



This is a pic of my new shoes (or one of them anyway). Like my previous shoes they are based on a York and Hedeby finds. These ones was not fun to make. It took two hours to turn them (inside out) and my fingers hurt for a week after.
Next pair will most likely be of Oseberg type (softer on the hands =) )

The shoes are handstiched with hand waxed three threaded linen thread. The leather has not been dyed but the shoes have been waxed to shelter from water.
